Some of our dealers have non-book lives (Oh, my!)

Our dealers at the Florida Antiquarian Book Fair have lives other than books. (Imagine!) In fact, as knowledgeable and accomplished they are in the world of antiquarian books, some of them are equally accomplished in other areas as well.

Here's an example: Randall Dollahon, of Dollahon Fine Books in Miami, is jazz guitar director at the University of Miami.

Randall has been called one of the greatest living guitar players in the world. He is a graduate of the University of Houston and holds a master's degree in music from the University of Miami. He has played concerts, toured, and recorded with the likes of Burt Bacharach, Michael Brecker, Randy Brecker, Placido Domingo, Bob James, Davie Liebman, Steve Morse, Jaco Pastorius, Ira Sullivan, and other jazz, country, rock, and Latin artists and groups.

Here's a session he did a couple of years ago with UM colleague Vince Maggio, who is professor of piano jazz. If you like jazz, it's worth a listen. And don't forget to stop by Randall's booth at the book fair and say hello.
